Ribera, Pedro Domingo de

Ribera, Pedro Domingo de (1681–1742). Castilian architect. He worked mostly in Madrid (where he was employed by the municipality from 1719). His late-Baroque designs included much Churrigueresque decoration. Typical of his style was the elaborate main portal of the San Fernando Hospital, Madrid (from 1722), in which festoons, estípites, flamelike forms, urns, and other motifs tumble over each other in abundance. It was said by Neo-Classicists that he ‘filled Madrid with a number of designs that have become the opprobrium of Europe’, and his buildings were catalogued as a dire warning to students of architecture: as a result, we know quite a lot about his output, which was remarkably old-fashioned for its date. Among his works may be cited the Church of the Virgen del Puerto (1718—with octagonal interior and camarín), the Church of Montserrat (1732–40), and the Palacio de Miraflores (c.1725), all in Madrid, and the massive bridge at Toledo (1718–35).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
